Obama continues to use last-minute legislation to set a legacy that we all know will eventually be discarded by Trump, but I guess we have to give him an A for effort.
In his latest move to push his anti-Second Amendment, anti-American agenda, Obama is targeting our elderly and trying to prevent them from being able to have a firearm, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The new legislation is specifically targeting elderly who have someone else managing their affairs.
Language used in Obama’s new legislation looks protective on the outside but when you investigate it further, it is quite apparent he is stripping elderly Americans of their right to bear arms.
In all, it is estimated that over 4 million people will possibly be affected by the new law.
Many elderly in this country have family members or an attorney handling their everyday finances, but that does not mean they are not mentally aware enough to own a firearm.
I would actually argue many of these elderly are people that need to defend themselves more than anyone else.
We have all seen the scams of people dressing up as servicemen or city employees to scope out a house, only to return later and rob it when they realize only grandma and grandpa are there to stop them.
And we have also seen both sides of this coin when someone in their 70s shocks a thug with a weapon to scare them off or the opposite, when they are killed because they have no way to defend themselves.
Some years ago, a friend of mine experienced this very thing. Some thugs broke into the basement because they knew an elderly couple lived in the home.
The father heard the noise in the basement and when he opened the door to investigate, he was greeted by a thug with a gun, who shot him. Imagine if he had been armed and opened that door with a gun cocked and loaded to take the thug down.
This is sadly a situation we see far too many times in our country and something we will surely see more if Obama has his way and deems over 4 million elderly Americans unworthy of exercising their Second Amendment right.
